Hot Time in the Ole' Green House Tonight!


I was out in the greenhouse picking some of the fruit off an jalapeno pepper. Don't know yet if I will dry them, pickle them or make pepper flakes. Adding the greenhouse was great for self pollinators like peppers, not so much for my mini cantaloupe, as it needs a pollinator, and I apparently was not it's type.

Keep us updated on what you do with those great-looking peppers, Rob.

I usually end up taking the easy road and letting mine dry for pepper flakes...not a bad route if you like your food spicy like we do.

How do you make pepper flakes? I have some CSA peppers I need to use but I'm not a fiery foods kind of gal. Husband usually adds hot sauce or pepper flakes to his portion of the meal.

You can alwasy try smoking them. If you don't have a smoker, this is a great time to pick one up for almost nothing.
